The wine is fragrant with red berries, slightly spicy notes, hints of nutmeg and vanilla; flavors of dark berries, herbs and spice, hints of vanilla carry through to the palate; and the mouth-feel is very nicely balanced and rich.
Exuberant aromas of this wine offer wonderful spicy berry tones, plums and cranberries.
Rich aromas of vanilla, cinnamon and clove intertwine with dark fruit and toasted
oak. The wine is so well balanced through its contrasting transitions of flavors that it
enticingly glides across the palate. The finish is full and lingering. Decant 30-60 minutes
prior to serving. Drink now through 2028. -Winemaker, Chris Corley
93 2011 ‘Tietjen Vineyard’ Cabernet Sauvignon (Rutherford). Hot gravel, concentrated plums, black peppercorns and dark chocolate syrup show on the nose of this single-vineyard bottling from the Corley family. Once sipped, the palate is coated in a luxurious liquid, showing olallieberries and blueberries, lifted by aromatic woods, and framed by noticeable but smoothed out tannins. —M.K.
